    Excellent Guide for setting up your own tutoring business!

    I bought this ebook only 5 days ago I already have some students! I posted my services online at two of the sites where the author recommends. I'm surprised how easy it is. The references the author gives show all the places that will list your tutoring service for free. You can put your photo on and the age level you tutor and if you tutor in person or online.

    I am now setting up the online tutoring component because I can make a lot of money tutoring Chinese students who live in China. (I found some of their groups on yahoo and on facebook.) They can only afford to pay about $10 for each time but I can have many people in my online class. I can just put the lessons up online that I got in the book. There are tons of free lessons in the book for teaching English to people in other countries.

    I am really the most impressed with all the extra resources in the book. In the other tutoring book I bought before there were not any references. In this book, she lists websites that have 100s of free lesson plans. She also lists all the free online teaching software that is just for teachers so it is so easy to use.

    I'm glad I'm not limited to the people in my city for students. I can post online for free and get people all over the world. Even with the very low price of $10 per lessson I can get 10 people for each hour.

    Thank you Kimberly
